In November 2007, Towne Park lost a colleague, friend and family member, and The Foundation lost one of its largest supporters – Robert James Valentine. To honor his memory, Towne Park and The Foundation have joined forces to create the Valentine Memorial Scholarship.

Part of Bob’s passion in life was teaching others what he learned, developing people’s talents and strengths, and encouraging individuals to pursue their dreams and aspirations. The Foundation along with friends, family, and colleagues created this scholarship to honor Bob’s memory and passion for life.

Annually, The Foundation awards one student a $10,000 college tuition scholarship to be disbursed in equal installments per college semester. So long as the recipient remains eligible, The Foundation will continue to provide financial support during their two- or four-year undergraduate program. During their college tenure, a student could potentially receive up to $40,000 in tuition assistance from The Foundation and the Valentine Memorial Scholarship Fund.
